Harold "Terry" McGraw, McGraw-Hill Cos.

Published on .

Where: McGraw-Hill Cos.
Why:McGraw joined McGraw-Hill Cos. in 1980 and took the helm in 1998. The financial crisis is having a huge impact on its Standard & Poor's division due to lessening demand for its credit reports. After McGraw-Hill laid off more than 1,000 people this year, McGraw said in a statement last month: "Ongoing cost containment and cost reduction activities continue to be a high priority for us in this environment."
